No Sparks Fly: Policy Participants Agree on Thinning Trees in the Lake Tahoe Basin

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

This article reports an analysis of mail-in questionnaires of policy participants in the Lake Tahoe Basin. The results show all stakeholder affiliations are concerned about the severity of fire risk relative to other important issue areas in the Basin, support thinning trees to reduce fire risk, and are skeptical that thinning trees will have adverse effects on scenic resources in the Basin. Support for thinning tress is strong among stakeholders with pro-development beliefs and with advanced degrees but is minimally influenced by owning property in the Basin.
